Stampin' Techniques To Try June Blog Hop : Bordered Sentiments

When I saw the name of this technique I admit that I interpreted it to mean a sentiment with a Border around it …..and I immediately them thought of a really cool technique I had seen using the Stamparatus. It was only after I designed my cards that I realised that there was a link to the actual technique in the Blog Hop instructions LOL. I do hope you like my take on it……and …..that you are able to consider it just one of the many possible interpretations of the brief!
For my cards, I’ve used the Varied Vases stampset and the Abstract Impressions set for the greetings. Both these sets are incredibly versatile and lend themselves to a number of different techniques and effects. I was inspired by a card created by Allison Okamitzu for the technique I used here…..she calls it the “Round and Round” technique. Following a few basic steps … allows you to turn almost any stamp image into a wreath shape or border.
View my YouTube video below for step by step instructions :

To create your jig ……you’ll need to cut some Stampin’ Grid Paper to slightly smaller than the base of the Stampartus using the largest plain square die from the Layering Squares Framelits Dies. Cut one square out and the turn the die perpendicular and cut another :

When that’s done you’ll need to cut a square from the cardstock that you wish to stamp on using the same die so that it fits into the jig and you are ready to go!

Start by placing the stamp image you wish to use in the top, pick it up with the Stamparatus plate and stamp it and then rotate the cardstock anti-clockwise in between each stamping.

Continue to stamp around in a circle and stamping the infill image also.
Adhere to project when completed!

  1. Great cards Vanessa. Love different colours. I think the blue one is my favourite. Thanks too for the tutorial on how to make them.

  2. Ha! I had the same thought process as you in the beginning but was so unsure that I googled it and found the simpler version. Thanks for the great tutorial with the Stamparatus – that’s going to be my next “play”. Your cards are so pretty.
